Gender in Urban Food Systems - Urban Agriculture Magazine no. 37 –

Author: Coll.
Publisher: RUAF Foundation

It’s no secret that the food system has an endemic gender problem. There are significant barriers to participation in food value chains due to socially-determined identities, roles, rights and obligations of women and men, and structural inequalities embedded in the system.Most work to address gender inequalities in the food system to date has focused on rural areas, with a particular focus on women producers. But there are vast gendered disparities in urban food systems too, which have been largely neglected by city officials, economic planners and development practitioners. This #37 issue of Urban Agriculture Magazine proposes to explore this important subject.
